Home » Student Handbook » Sanctions


If a student has violated a regulation or an article of the Code of Conduct as outlined in this handbook or in other College or VSC policies, the student is subject to sanctions. Disciplinary actions against an individual progress in severity depending on the seriousness and frequency of the violations. The College reserves the right to take disciplinary action against students who are involved in any off-campus incidents of criminal activity or any inappropriate non-criminal behavior, particularly when such incidents have implications for campus safety or an effect on the reputation or operation of the College. Additionally, the College may provide information to Local, State or Federal authorities as the situation warrants.

When making sanctioning decisions Resident Directors, Disciplinary Boards and hearing officers will consider both mitigating and aggravating circumstances. The following factors may be considered once responsibility has been determined:
  • Present demeanor of the student.
  • Prior offenses. 
  • The nature and severity of the offense and any damage or injury resulting. 
  • The student‘s honesty, or lack of honesty, and cooperation with the staff during the investigation of the incident and the disciplinary hearing
